I suggest you ...

Custom sorting in App Drawer

Sorting folders and apps in custom way, like TouchWiz. Still allow the option to sort alphabetically and folders first, but make a custom sorting in both App Drawer and inside folders in App Drawer.

        It would be nice if nova launcher defs gave us an status update. I cant judge how difficult this is but as the started a year and a half ago that would be the least they could do

        Yes exactly @Aslanoo, Apex Launcher does already have this feature. If Apex can at least implement it so should Nova. I don't like how it's done on Apex though. The rearranging should be done in the app drawer while it is open. NOT in the Settings.

        guys buy apex launcher! has this feature and a lot more. Nova has nothing but it's name

        Custom sorting not being possible is the only reason keeping me from using the app as default

        Hi guys! Beautifil launcher! But this request has 8,600+ votes since 2012 and there's still nothing?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is a basic feature, Nova Launcher. Why would you contuine to refuse these thousands of requests. Stupid me, I thought this would be a obvious include in the latest uopdate. I paid for this launcher then I deleted it because of this reason. Must be ran by the government?

        If you developers can add some stupid new Android N features then you should be able to add a simple feature like this. What is wrong with you guys?

        @nico I understand what you're saying and it makes sense. But it doesn't make sense when the developer add some other features seeing in the latest!!! android version but not such a needed feature.

      • Stefanos DagStefanos Dag commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        this is the most wanted feature for me. This, and the possibility to have free spots in the app drawer in every window.

        Something that nova dev said in google+ "So here's how it works. Just because something is requested doesn't mean we(TeslaCoilSW/Nova Launcher) instantly implement the feature. 

        We base Nova Launcher heavily on Launcher3/Google Now Launcher and do a lot of the things they do within Nova Launcher. 

        Yes, we do things they don't do and they do things we don't do for various reasons. 

        Some things also happen to be OS specific. For example, the Marshmallow animation can only be used on devices running Marshmallow and not lower Android versions.

        With that said, we didn't create this section just to put it on ignore so we can forget about feature requests. We happen to look at http://feedback.novalauncher.com quite regularly. But again, just because it's been requested 8,000+ times doesn't mean we're going to add it. It also doesn't mean that we're not going to add it.

        As far as the sort feature within the app drawer, it's possible that's coming in the future and I'm not saying that just to make people happy. 

        But that doesn't mean it's going to be in beta-7, beta-8 or even in 4.3 final. It's a ton of code and work and for those that don't know Kevin does all of this by himself. I answer emails and stuff like that so I don't code or help in that area. 

        While I understand it's frustrating to see a feature request with 8,000+ votes over several years and it still not be implemented. But at the same time, Kevin does this by himself and surely the features that are within Nova Launcher currently are more than most launchers have.

        We do our best to keep the app updated on a very regular basis and in a timely manner. 

        Hopefully this helps everyone here understand how it all works and trust me, Kevin works on Nova Launcher day in and day out, as well as TeslaUnread for that matter." (somebody requested a animation in desktop)
